BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A Yonkers resident who attended Buffalo State before he slashed another student with a box cutter sat through a three-day trial, only to be convicted by a jury in 12 minutes.
A jury found 23-year-old Mohamed Kaba guilty of second-degree assault for slashing a student five times with a box cutter on Sept. 7 of this past school year. Police say the fight broke out at a student apartment complex following a fight between the two several days earlier off campus.
Kaba has since been expelled from Buffalo State, but his victim has since graduated — despite graduating with numerous scars.
When sentenced, Kaba faces a maximum of seven years behind bars.
